The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is close to selecting the final location of the future FBI headquarters.
The Mayor and Council will consider sending a letter to the GSA expressing its strong support for locating a new headquarters for the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) adjacent to the Greenbelt Metro Station.
The letter states many benefits of selecting the Greenbelt locations. The site is also accessible for agency staff and visitors via the metro system and I-495.
This is the only site option at a metro station; selecting it will result in lower greenhouse gas emissions and less traffic congestion than other options.
The University of Maryland, with many programs, will be close to the FBI Headquarters if the Greenbelt location is selected.
Finally, the letter asks the GSA to consider prioritizing equity in making agency location decisions.
I hope the city does send a letter of support! The location seems like a smart choice for everyone. Hopefully the GSA sees the importance of having transportation available to FBI employees. It could also help improve our city by having such an important institution nearby.
